. he's planning this year to abolish the corporate and individual income tax, moving in a very different direction than the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. so there's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines are open. democrats, 202-585-3880. republicans, 202-585-3881. independents, 202-585-3882. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week with. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in add
's so many obligations so many new taxes associated with it. it's incredibly expense simple. it was supposed to lower the cost. it has raised the cost of the premiums for average family, and in the neighborhood of $5,000. this is a disaster. and the real question is, will anybody have the honesty to own up to the fact this is a disaster and saying can we start over again and do this in a reasonable way and get the voices of people who actually know something about how to save money involved? everybody agrees that healthcare reform is necessary. but it needs to be done the right way. neil neil do you think it's too late for that? that this sort of medical ship has sailed and despite all the problems, i don't see the administration trying to draw it back. paul ryan wants to rescind the whole healthcare program and start fresh, but that's unlikely. so given that distinct possibility, what are we left with? >> well, i'm not as pessimistic as you are. i think there is just a slight chance that maybe some people who have pushed this thing forward, can stop for a moment and instead
